I learned about eating acorns from a wonderful book, The Trees In My Forest, by Bernd Heinrich. I was so inspired, I planted two young white oak trees. Unfortunately, they were both destroyed by Hurricane Irene last summer so I will have to start again. Thank you for the fun link. Have you tried acorns yet?

I have not tried acorns yet, but I have found some white oaks nearby which have acorns on them, so if I manage to arm wrestle the squirrels for them, I hope to be trying it soon. I’ll be reporting back on any experiments.
